Description:
Mental health is a prerequisite for normal growth and development. Most children and adolescents have good mental health, but studies have shown that 1 in 10 children and adolescents suffer from mental health disorders severe enough to cause impairment. Mental health disorders in children and young people can damage self-esteem and relationships with their peers, undermine school performance, and reduce quality of life, not only for the child or young person, but also for their parents or carers and families. The majority of illness burden in childhood, and more so in adolescence, is caused by mental health disorders. Mental health disorders in childhood are the most powerful predictor of mental health disorders in adulthood. The development of comprehensive Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for young people up to the age of 18 years is described in the Department of Health and Children A Vision for Change (2006) policy document. CAMHS had been organised until then for young people up to the age of 16 years. Key to this is the development of 99 multidisciplinary CAMHS teams, of which 55 are in place, 50 community teams, 2 day hospital teams and 3 paediatric hospital liaison teams. Further recommendations are contained in the policy concerning inpatient services (a total of 108 beds), mental health intellectual disability teams (a total of 13), substance misuse, eating disorder and forensic services for young people.
